“Wayne Sadin on Digital Strategy” episodes will explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business. We’ll focus on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, we talk about hyperscaling, digital transformation, and shifts in enterprise technology that are creating opportunities for differentiation.
In this episode: how the cloud is driving us to new features as we strive to get things—everything!—done faster. Wayne also shares some thoughts on how “hyperscaling” is really the domain of Google, Amazon, and Microsoft—and why everybody else is going to be a second-class citizen. Later, Wayne asks, why invest in a million servers and data centers around the world? Because you could just as easily hire 5,000 developers and build an application that will make your customers so happy, they’ll never think about leaving.
